Evidently Robin is not currently available as your question was returned to the "Q".

I can respond to your question & work with you or you can wait for Robin to return, it is totally up to you.

Just checking in.

I don't believe that would be reasonable cause (not knowing about an annual filing requirement), but the hospital issue may be; we would need to discuss further if you are available.
